Tommy Mandel – Soul Tango
From Tommy Mandel – Tommy Mandel
Released on Songshop Records, 1981, US
Tommy Mandel’s name might seem familiar for some of you for the man has been playing keyboards for many rock superstars, including Bryan Adams and Dire Straits. However, who knew that he had released this crazy eponymous 12″ in 1981 ?
Tommy Mandel EP is a potpourri of No-Wave-influenced pop songs and weird disco tracks, and, in our opinion, each track makes this record worth looking for ! Soul Tango is the most laid-back tune on the 12″ but it still contains enough bizarre epicness to compete with Allow Me (To Destroy You) or Caught In A Chinese Disco. Let yourself have a sensual dance with Tommy.
